Once again my annual picks for cool cameras that are current on the market. Firstly I will tell you about a few of the compact models.....
Canon Powershot S90 Its a new Sleak, nearly 4x (starting at 28mm wide) optical with a beautiful build and some sweet looking image quality under lower light conditions... Not cheap but its a great investment!
Nikon Coolpix S640 Again a nice little build with some pretty rapid autofocus. This one has a 5x (starting at 28mm wide) optical zoom and is pretty simple to use!!
Fuji Finepix F70 EXR And why not.. seems as I am a current owner of one of there other models.... 10x optical (28mm wide angle). Smallest camera with the largest zoom and using there fabo EXR sensor it does a great job and currently is the cheapest out of the bunch!
Canon Powershot SD980is A cool little touch screen unit...5x optical (staring from 24mm wide). HD video which is nice if your into video!
now we move onto the Bigguns...
Nikon D5000 Great body with great low light performance and with HD video. Can come with two good starter Lenses with VR and will be around $999 i believe for the christmas period
Canon EOS 7D. Wow what an amazing body. A great reaction from Canon against the Nikon D300s. Has a sweet viewfinder and all the trimmings. MP's are a little high which has become a little unnecessary but thats what its got. Brilliant weather sealing and of course HD Video. Speed and wireless flash also make there appearance on this body.
Nikon D700 Still a massive favourite amongst SERIOUS enthusiasts and Pros... Performance and durability combined with superior low light performance with the 12MP full frame CMOS senosr.. Wowzers... would still love to take one of these home!!!
Lastly I am putting some binoculars on my shopping list...
Nikon Sporter 8x42 EX Nice build for the price ($200approx). Bright and fast to focus and are fully waterproof.
Vortex Viper 8x42 Better than the previous but come with a price tag!!!!
Again.... all products are available at Lens & Shutter. Ask for Duncan or mention my name if I am not there!
